2019 ASPNR RESEARCH AWARD

This year’s American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology (ASPNR) Research Grant was awarded to Dr. Rupa Radhakrishnan for her application titled Effect of Pre-eclamptic Milieu on Neonatal Brain Perfusion, Growth and Function. Her grant application was selected after review of multiple applications by the ASNPR Research Committee. The grant award was for $27,500.

In this study, the authors propose to study brain perfusion and function in neonates born preterm to mothers with pre-eclampsia and to identify differences compared to preterm infants without maternal pre-eclampsia, with the long-term goal of understanding how these changes affect neurodevelopmental outcome.

Dr. Radhakrishnan graduated from the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital in India where she also completed a pediatric residency and did her radiology residency at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, followed by a fellowship in Pediatric Radiology and Pediatric Neuroradiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. She is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine and a pediatric neuroradiologist at Riley Hospital for Children.
